Waskom hosted it's first high school soccer game Tuesday night.

 

Do you think soccer will become more popular in smaller schools?

 

 

I think it's great. It IS becoming more popular in smaller schools.

I agree.. Tatum's been playing it for a few years now and the kids really enjoy it.

Guess you don't keep up with the news. A lot of 1A-2A schools are adding soccer. We have a school that just won a championship in football that added the sport not long ago.

They Started soccer cause the A.D was a soccer coach, Thats why!!

 

 

That worked out well for Waskom having the qualified soccer coach...

The students have petitioned for a soccer team a few times and this year they got it.

The last I heard, Coach Keeling is not coaching the soccer team. Another coach who played some college soccer is doing it.

I don't care for soccer but if they have enough time to do soccer that is fine with me. It has help encourage some of our Hispanic kids to participate in athletics more than they where. Waskom does have a high percentage of Hispanic kids and also I believe there is an encouragement for those kids to play football also. I think it is good all around.

I think they should spread the kids even thinner at small schools. Let them have the opportunity to play as many things as possible. Swimming, gymnastics, diving , wresting, water polo, lacrosse.....That way they can be average at a bunch of things and good at none. I forgot throw in the band OAP and UIL academics. Maybe the UIL will offer a championship ring to the school that spreads thier kids the thinnest.

You ever wonder how many kids may have transferred from Waskom to play soccer.

 

Every year more schools add soccer. If you have not noted the Hispanic community growing. They like soccer. Soccer is a "base" sport which complements other sports if you are open minded.

Great recruiting tool as well....if I am not mistaken UIL does not regulate soccer at the lower levels??? More like another way football ( not futbol) coaches work with the kids year round much like powerlifting.

Tenaha started the state's 1st 1A soccer program a couple of years ago. Some of the soccer players hepled Tenaha to an undefeated season and the 1A Div II State Football Championship this year. One was an All-District kicker and the other played linebacker and was the District's Defensive MVP.

 

I'm not a soccer fan (it's kinda like watching paint dry) but Tenaha's soccer program has complimented their football program.

 

 

That's encouraging.... We enjoyed following Tenaha's successful year and I'm pulling for the basketball season also. Would love to see them go all the way in basketball also.

 

Waskom athletics is coming back around... the alumni are hopeful for some future great seasons.

I believe this is correct. Soccer is not currently regulated by UIL at this level.

 

Waskom has a great community of Hispanic families. They are some of the most concerned parents and hard working kids you'll ever meet. We are glad to have them.
